Earlier this year I bought myself a ‘nifty fifty’ lens for my camera. This is a 50mm prime lens, meaning there is no zoom on it. That’s it in the photo at the top. As my lenses go this is by far the cheapest, (despite being a Canon), but it didn’t come with a nice padded pouch for storage or transport.
So of course this means I need to make one. Last night I simply ‘had’ to start on this pouch. You know the sort of ‘had’ I’m talking about. All the stuff from the study makeover was complete (or as complete as it’s going to be) and my sewing machine is now in position on it’s table behind the sofa. This means I can sew and also have the TV on in the background which I quite like.
So I dug out some batik, wadding and a cream fabric to form the lining. It was getting a bit late in the evening by this point when I remembered I needed some shots if I was going to blog about it. So out came the mobile for a quick snap – but that was long enough for Salem the cat to get his bum in shot.
So far I’ve quilted the batik and cream fabric together ready to be sewn into the pouch. Unfortunately if I run my sewing machine at anything other than the slowest speed bad things happen which end with unpicking and swearing. As a result this part took quite a long time. I’m not bothered though as I’m saving up for a sparkly new machine later this year and I was simply enjoying sewing again.
With luck I’ll get some more done on it tonight
